A Smile for Friday

A rabbit goes into the shop, banged on the counter and said “pound of carrots please!”

The shopkeeper tells the rabbit “I can sell you a pound of carrots but please don’t bang on the counter”

Next day the rabbit does exactly the same thing, bangs on the counter, “pound of carrots please!”

The shopkeeper says “I’ll sell you the carrots, don’t bang on the counter!”

Next day, rabbit bangs on the counter, “pound of carrots please!”

The shopkeeper is very angry now, “ I’m gonna sell you the carrots but if you come banging tomorrow I’m going to nails your paws to the counter!”

Next day the rabbit goes into the shop and starts looking around quizzically then says “got any nails?”

“No” the shopkeeper replies

The rabbit bangs on the counter,

“Pound of carrots please!”
